Bikini Laser Hair Removal - Everything You Need to Know Before Trying Laser
Today we’re diving deep into the frequently asked questions above bikini laser hair removal. Here's everything you need to know about bikini laser hair removal, does it work, types of bikini laser hair removal, how much each bikini laser cost, and the session needed for the best results.
What does bikini laser include and what are the different types of bikini laser hair removal style available.
Standard Bikini – The hair is removed from anywhere outside the panty line usually about thee fingers outside the bikini and hairs around the upper leg
Brazilian Bikini – The hair is removed entirely except a rectangular strip or triangle.
Hollywood Bikini – The hair is completely removed from the pelvic region. The Hollywood means absolutely everything which includes outer/inner bikini, the labia, etc.
Perianal Bikini – The hair is removed from the buttocks, cheeks, and everything in between. This is commonly paired with the Hollywood or Brazilian.
Is laser safe for the bikini area?
Yes, laser hair removal is safe for the bikini area and is the most common area to get laser treatment. The candela gentlemax pro laser is used in clinics to laser away hair from intimate areas. Within that laser is the Alexandrite laser and the Ndyag laser.
That means even if someone has slightly darker skin on the bikini which is quite common, the Ndyag laser is used to make sure the skin is always safe. In terms of how thin the skin or the fact that it’s an intimate area, it doesn’t make any difference at all, there’s no risk of someone’s fertility or any harm and the laser works quite well in that area.
Does Brazilian laser hair removal include buttocks?
Brazilian bikini laser hair removal does not include the buttocks but can be paired as a package with the perianal bikini laser treatment. As stated above this includes the buttocks, cheeks, and everything in between and is commonly paired with the Hollywood or Brazilian.
How many laser treatments are needed for bikini?
At least eight laser treatments, if not more to remove and maintain the bikini area afterwards because the bikini is more of a hormonal area.
If you want absolutely no hair at all then you may need more than the usual eight. 60-80% of the time when someone gets an eight treatment package they see a huge significant reduction and if there’s any hair left it’s going to be quite fine and much easier to manage.
At the end of the day it all depends on what you want. For example, if someone with a lot of very thick hair is having a hard time shaving, waxing, or getting a lot of ingrowns then eight sessions would do them good for hair reduction. Again, hairs that grows back afterwards if any is thinner and much easier to handle.
However, if you want absolutely nothing down there meaning never having hair growing again in any of those areas then you are going to need more than eight sessions.
How long does a Brazilian laser session take?
A session of laser on the Brazilian or Hollywood bikini area takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The time in between each bikini laser hair removal session is about 6-8 weeks so it would take 12-18 months to complete.
In between these sessions you’ll hardly have any hair growth. After completing the standard recommended 8 session you may need follow up session every 8-12 weeks to make sure nothing is growing back since it is a hormonal area and the chances of hair slowly reappearing close to the inner sections are more likely.
Is bikini laser hair removal worth it?
It’s hard to say if bikini hair removal is worth it or not since each individual is looking for their own outcomes but if you are looking for long lasting hair removal, significant hair reduction, getting rid of ingrowns, not having to shave every week or wax every 3 weeks, then yes bikini laser hair removal is worth it.
If you think that you are going to opt in for the standard pack of 8 session and never having a single hair grow back then this might leave you disappointment because you may need addition or follow up sessions over a longer period of time to achieve those results. Things such as hormone levels can be a leading factor in hair growth so that’s something to keep in mind.

Does bikini line laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal does not hurt much more than waxing as the total procedure is not completed at one time. The sensation or pain associated with laser hair removal is often described as a “rubber band snapping on your skin”.
Since the skin around the bikini is thinner and more sensitive your pain levels may be heightened. No need to worry because a numbing cream is usually used prior to treatment followed by a cooling gel. Bikini laser hair removal is safer than waxing, causes no bleeding, and quicker than waxing also.
Do I need to shave before Brazilian Laser?
With Brazilian laser hair removal, you cannot get a treatment done without having the hair completely removed from the surface of the skin. If the hair is on the surface of the skin it will act as a blockage making it more difficult for the laser to get through to the root of the follicle itself.
The goal is to get the light emitted from the laser right down to the root of the hair to kill the follicle completely. If there is is too much hair on the surface of the skin at the time of treatment it won’t allow for the full benefits of the laser. It’s recommended to shave the night before for best results.
What should I expect after my first Brazilian laser hair removal?
It’s true that laser hair removal can eliminate hair permanently. However, a single treatment cannot instantly remove hair on the area if that's what you're thinking. When considering laser hair removal, you must know that you need to undergo a course of treatments before hair can be eliminated in the area. The cycle of everyone’s hair growth plays a major part on how laser hair removal works.
Here's what to expect for Brazilian laser hair removal after treatment: The time will vary from person to person, but the combined average is either instantly (within 24hrs) or 2-3 weeks you’ll notice the hairs starting to fall out in patches.
